There is a lot of debate about the practice in the Sacramento Valley. We have some of the worst air pollution in the country and when we might have a blue sky day, that is when they burn.

Looks almost like a geyser if you don't notice the blue tint in the smoke. Beautiful in its way. And efficient. Nice shooting.

An interesting process. How we are always transforming our landscape!

There's lots of debate about it here in the northwest as well! Great shot!
Hope you have a great week, Jane!

It's a very pretty scene but I can see how that would quickly pollute the air in a valley.

A very unusual shot and one that makes one think.

Thanks everyone:) its still legal in Scotland to do this, but, yes its not very environmentally friendly. Its supposed to regenerate the soil after harvesting but whether that works I don't know, this one was out of control though and required 3 fire engines to put it out, the farmers are supposed to inform the Fire Service when they are going to do it.
